Frequently Asked Questions by Jobseekers

Have a question that isn't here? Ask us!

 

What information should you save for your interview?

Your interests, likes and hobbies so that the interviewer can get to know you face-to-face. You can sell all the skills in the world on paper but personality, building a rapport and finding common interests, is so important.

 

What is the best way to write a CV?

A clear concise format that is easy to read and to the point. You want it no more than 2 pages and use bullet points. Use the opening paragraph wisely to get a bit of your personality over.

 

How often should you update your CV?

You should update your CV when you are applying for a new role or a different role or promotion internally.
Only update it with factual information or updates on your personal interests. You should keep a record of all your achievements at work separately to add to your CV later if you need to.

 

What should you include in a cover letter?

A cover letter should explain why you are the best person for the role. Use it to give examples that back-up what you have said in your CV. It should be no longer than 1 A4 page and tailored specifically to the company and role that you are applying for, avoiding vague and generic terms.

 

How are you keeping temp staff safe from the virus?

We carry out checks on our current and new temps through a Covid-19 declaration form. They are required to also complete this if they have been ill or on holiday, which means we always have everything as up-to-date as possible and know our movements of our temps.
We provide all our temps with the appropriate PPE to ensure they are safe and comfortable in their work place at all times.

 

How long should my CV be?

The general rule is no more than 2 pages. If you are sending your #CV to a recruitment agency, they will help you filter out what is and isn't needed depending on the job.

 

I'm starting a new job, working from home for the first time, any advice on how to stand out as an employee?

I think is important to always be reachable and attend any online meetings in time. Be keen to learn and don’t be afraid to ask for support when needed.

 

What does a Warehouse Operative do?

The general duties include picking and packing, loading and unloading as well as sometimes assembly. Depending where you are working, you also get the opportunity to use a PC and learn new skills using software.

 

What's it like working in a warehouse?

Warehouse work is a great environment and every day is different and varied. It's a great opportunity to make friends when working in a team and learn new skills.
Warehouses come in all shapes and sizes and different companies need different types of warehouse operatives (such as pickers or packers).
They usually require staff to be active and have good attention to detail so you'll do well if you enjoy being kept busy, are diligent and don't want to spend all day sitting at a desk.

 

What should I do if I don't hear back from an application?

Don't be afraid to ask for feedback by emailing the HR team. Approach them from a feedback perspective, rather than annoyance if you think your application has been ignored, as politeness is more likely to get a response.

 

How do you get paid as a temp?

Weekly, every Friday in arrears via BACS straight into workers nominated bank account.

 

Do you provide a workplace pension for temp workers?

Yes, auto enrolment into pension scheme after completed 12 weeks of work for us.
